Last First Day

 


It’s the last first day of school,
I’m sippin coffee in the quiet left by you.
Over the years I’d wish summer away.
Now It’s the last first day.


It’s the last first day of school.  No more concerts in the stands.
No more watching you.
Seasons come round you’ll be flying away. 
It’s the last first day.


CHORUS:
Your roots buried deep in my heart, rich, solid earth where you start.
Giving you a life and home’s like breathing in the sun.
Of all the dreams I’ve known you outshine most everyone.


It’s the last first day of school.  I’m not sure who I’ll be or what I’ll do
Nothing that comes now will ever replace all of our first days

 

CHORUS:
Your roots buried deep in my heart, rich, solid earth where you start.
Stand tall in your majesty. Breathe deeply of the sun
Of all the dreams I’ve known, you outshine everyone.
